ESL lessons are catered to the level, age, and expectations of students, integrating a variety of exercises, assignments, activities, games, technologies, and sometimes field trips. Whatever the motivation for improving English skills--whether for employment, for school, or for efficiency in every day tasks--students will be included in coordinating the course plan. We will work together to address desired areas of focus in reading, writing, listening, and/or speaking in English.
Exam preparation courses are organized with consideration for each student's approximate score at course start date, their target score, and the time available until desired test date. After an assessment of the student's starting level, I will provide a course plan and recommendation for time required for target score achievement.
My philosophy: I believe teaching and learning are reciprocal activities.
Shortly after graduating with a B.A. specializing in Comparative Literature and Culture, I moved to Italy and spent several years there teaching ESL and preparation for English exams (IELTS, TOEFL, TOEIC, etc.).
Returning to Canada, I have since continued to teach in these areas, also offering English for Specific Purposes courses (e.g., Business English) and preparation in Canadian exams (CELPIP, CAEL).
I have recently returned to my own academic studies, pursuing a B.Ed. in Adult Education.

• in-company courses in ESL for the corporate environment.
